  • Description:
    "This still-young program continues to be administered primarily as a collection of individual programs rather than as a unified program with clear priorities and performance targets. Within this context, the individual programs appear to be effective in producing essential program outputs. Nevertheless, the Habitat Matrix Program as a whole cannot yet demonstrate progress toward achieving the outcome goals set forth for it by NOAA's Ecosystem Goal Team -- healthy habitats for living marine resources that contribute to (1) healthy and productive coastal and marine ecosystems that benefit society, and (2) a well-informed public that acts as a steward of coastal and marine ecosystems. The Academy Panel's recommendations for strengthening the Habitat's ability to demonstrate progress toward outcome goals include immediate actions to improve the program's existing logic models and performance measures -- working with other federal agencies, NOAA's regional offices, and non-federal partners to relate the current programs more directly to commonly agreed-on outcomes. The Panel also recommends a longterm strategy to establish new performance measures that can more directly document progress toward reaching explicit habitat improvement goals required to achieve larger ecosystem, fish population, and socio-economic goals"--Executive summary.
